Common Name: English Lavender
Silver Mist Lavender has a ghostly, almost whitish appearance from a distance. It forms a bushy, very well-branched, uniform clump of fragrant, glaucous silver foliage.
Beginning in midsummer, a week or two later than other lavenders, it produces perfectly contrasting lavender purple flowers which last for many weeks.
Lavender has been grown for centuries for its intensely fragrant flowers and beautiful appearance. It is a staple item of every sunny garden, and its dried flowers are widely used in potpourris and arrangements.
